We turned the existing BOU website into a responsive/mobile design.

The client wanted to keep their unique brand for their members so the main development job was to re-write the front-end so that the code was responsive and scalable, whilst doing this we made small improvements and introduced a subscription service for existing members to pay their annual fee online and buy publications.


 Development included:

  • Woo-commerce integration
  • Membership signups which creates a new account
  • Discounts for members
  • Direct Debit integration & card payments through World Pay.
  • Automatic renewals using direct debit.
  • On the fly products for publications
  • Events & ticket listings – This included the flexibility of creating early bird tickets to events by adding buy now buttons on the fly.
  • Ongoing hosting & support
